My Own Views, Through the Words of Others
Of the many choices for the Millenium Development Goals I decided to focus this weeks entry on Achieving Universal Primary Education. Can we achieve this goal? Why use my own words when I can use images and other people's words to describe my views on this goal.
These images show how the achieving of this goal is typically seen. Kids in far off countries happily learning. These pictures show a good start of how Universal Primary Education is being achieved.
Because everyone no matter what they look like deserve a basic education.
We want to keep all children motivated and learning, not just the one's from far off countries.
And we don't want this to happen.
"He who opens a school door, closes a prison."
"Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army."
"A Mind is a Terrible Thing To Waste"
-United Negro College Fund slogan
(I think these quotes pretty much explain themself)
This short playlist I created I feel describes both the process and result of achieving this goal. The reasons for each song are:
ABC by The Jackson 5- because it's simple, "you and me" need to help others learn "ABC" and "123"
Lie To Me by Jonny Lang- we need to stop lying to ourselves, saying everything is alright when dealing with education.
Get It Like You Like It by Ben Harper- you have to take things into your own hands to get it like you like it, universal primary education.
Somwhere Over the Rainbow by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes- somewhere in the future we will "make this dream come true"
Tomorrow by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes- because tomorrow achieving universal primary education will be a reality.
These images, quotes, and songs show better than I could myself why we need to achieve universal priamary education. It also explains a couple ways how we should go about achieving this goal. And it shows what will happen once this goal is reached.
